The Stockholm conference, organised by the Swedish Arbetslivascentrum in 1988, on Culture, Language and Artificial Intelligence, brought together over three hundred and sixty people interested in the cultural impact of technology, particularly of AI. The premise behind the conference - and this book - is the conclusion of the Swedish Centre for Working Life: that mathematical and engineering models are not in themselves sufficient to explain the effects of computers on the concept and exercise of knowledge. The book contains 29 challenging papers under the headings - language and knowledge - tacit knowledge - the information society - education, training skills and work - expert systems.
